They knew what was coming. Man and beast knew what lay ahead. After the war cry. Bitter the grave. At long last, the peace King Arthur was born to usher in has settled over the realm. But Arthur was also born to be a warrior... and all true warriors are restless without a fight. Yearning for battle and ever-loyal, Arthur is easily deceived into setting sail for Gaul to defend its territories-leaving his country vulnerable and leaderless. A beacon of hope in a land of desolation, he was to be the Lord of the Summer Land for now and forever. But first, the Pendragon must face the ultimate test, one that will take all his courage, strength of will, and honor to survive. Because once destiny is fulfilled, can you ever truly win again? "Helen Hollick has it all. She tells a great story..." -Bernard Cornwell "Hollick's interpretation is bold, affecting, and well worth fighting to defend." -Publishers Weekly

Adam de Guirande owes his lord, Roger Mortimer, much more than loyalty. He owes Lord Roger for his life and all his worldly goods, he owes him for his beautiful wife – even if Kit is not quite the woman Lord Roger thinks she is. So when Mortimer rises in rebellion against the king, Adam has no choice but to ride with him – no matter what the ultimate cost may be. England in 1321 is a confusing place. Edward II has been forced by his barons to exile his favourite, Hugh Despenser. The barons, led by the powerful Thomas of Lancaster, Roger Mortimer and Humphrey de Bohun, have reasons to believe they have finally tamed the king. But Edward is not about to take things lying down, and fate is a fickle mistress, favouring first one, then the other. Adam fears his lord has over-reached, but at present Adam has other matters to concern him, first and foremost his new wife, Katherine de Monmouth. His bride comes surrounded by rumours concerning her and Lord Roger, and he hates it when his brother snickers and whispers of used goods. Kit de Courcy has the misfortune of being a perfect double of Katherine de Monmouth – which is why she finds herself coerced into wedding a man under a false name. What will Adam do when he finds out he has been duped? Domestic matters become irrelevant when the king sets out to punish his rebellious barons. The Welsh Marches explode into war, and soon Lord Roger and his men are fighting for their very lives. When hope splutters and dies, when death seems inevitable, it falls to Kit to save her man – if she can. In the Shadow of the Storm is the first in Anna Belfrage’s new series, The King’s Greatest Enemy, the story of a man torn apart by his loyalties to his lord, his king, and his wife.

Zill al-Sultan was the notorious Qajar prince who ruled Isfahan, Iran’s former capital during the Safavid era, as governor from 1874 to 1907. He is remembered as a Qajar anti-hero -- even a villain -- to this day, based largely on his apparent exercise of absolute power and pursuit of intrigue to further his own political interests. But late 19th-century Iran was a complex place: the Anglo-Russian great power rivalry, the assertive Shi’ite militancy of leading clerics, the growing power of the merchant classes, the entrenched and jealously guarded control of the landowners and tribal leaders, the halting attempts to reach out to modernity -- all of these helped to create a climate of instability through which Zill al-Sultan navigated with almost Machiavellian skills and deft ruthlessness. Heidi Walcher has produced the first, extraordinarily important study which is both a biography of one of the most colorful individuals in the history of modern Iran and a study of the social and political circumstances of late 19th-century Iran. In the process she examines the difficult relationships between the secular and Islamic elites, the impact on Isfahan of the pivotal Tobacco Protests in 1890-92, the open trade wars against the British, suspicion of the Jews, the persecution of local Babis and Bahais, the confrontation with European missionaries and the events leading up to the Constitutional Revolution of 1906. This book is a major contribution to a proper understanding of modern Iran.

The threat from Trosgarth is growing and betrayal is in the air. The Priests of Ryoch, no longer a minor faction, are trained warriors with empathic powers. Armies are marching to war and the balance is no longer in the favour of the allies, for without the Eldric and their sorcery they cannot hope to win. Desperate to redress the balance a new power will be sought, but this will not be all that it seems. Kaplyn’s nightmares are plagued by dragons and his fear of them has driven him from Thrace, seeking the truth behind an image, shown to him by Astalus the Court Wizard. Kaplyn is shown an image that Vastra is alive. If that is to be believed then the enemy now has a crystal from the tree of life and will be able to open a permanent gateway between the worlds, allowing the demon hoards to come, and no one will be able to oppose them. Kaplyn is driven to the very brink of despair, having touched a kara-stone he has awoken the link with his Shaol and madness threatens his fragile hold on reality....

‘There he is! Get him! Kill the bastard!’ Cross the King family, one of the most powerful in all of Barbados, and you’re in trouble – indeed if you’ve crossed them like the young redneck Jason who’s deflowered Robby King’s sixteen-year-old daughter Elizabeth, you need to run for your life. And run he does, leaving the girl who loves him at the mercy of a an outraged family that will stop at nothing to avoid the public disgrace that’s inevitable in the 1930s if the truth gets out. Elizabeth faces a brutal choice: have her child snatched away the moment it is born or be exiled in penury forever – from the family and its estate with its palatial mansion and sugar cane plantation. Heartbroken, she chooses the former and is packed off to the alien world of pre-war London, where her glamorous Aunt Sandra takes her under her far from angelic wing. But scandal is hot on her heels as layer upon layer of secret shame is peeled away over the following decades, exposing raw resentment, persecution and even incest. Lurching wildly from the balmy heat of Barbados to the seamy side of early twentieth century London behind closed doors, this epic tale is a gripping romantic thriller spiced with intrigue, sex and scandal.

Seventeen-year-old Eric is a kick-butt squire to the most revered and protective knight in Fallhollow—well, he would be if Sir Trogsdill allowed him to do anything even remotely chivalrous. Determined to prove his self-worth, Eric sets out to find the mythical paladin summoned to protect the realm. After all, if he can join forces with this legendary savior Sir Trogsdill will have to promote him to knighthood, right? Meanwhile, 16-year-old David is whisked off to the magical realm of Fallhollow where everyone thinks he's some sort of paladin destined to fulfill a wacked-out, two-hundred year old prophecy. As Paladin, David is supposed to help kill a dragon bent on destroying the realm, but he needs some sort of magic key to do it. The problem is that the key is around the neck of an annoying squire who's too wrapped up in proving himself which makes him completely unhelpful. With egos as big as the dragon they need to destroy, Eric and David must get over themselves or watch everything they know and love burn.
